 There was a time when Manchester United was doing well without making any noise.

 MU used to be the team every player wanted to serve.

Sir Alex Ferguson once embraced a concept called a “United tax” that would accept paying more for new signings so it could be done quickly and in silence. Stars like David Beckham, Roy Keane, Ruud van Nistelrooy and Jaap Stam were sent out of Old Trafford quickly, sometimes brutally, when they fell out of favor with their manager. Contracts are renewed regularly, sometimes without representation. Of course, those were the days when the players wanted to stay and United enjoyed tremendous success both on and off the pitch as Ferguson worked alongside chief executive David Gill.

When another rather messy transfer market for the Red Devils closed and Richard Arnold officially took over from Ed Woodward on February 1, Man United was already a system incomparable to its former self. .

This is the club that took a difficult 18 months to sign Jadon Sancho for £73m and tracked no less than 804 right-backs before paying £50m for Aaron Wan-Bissaka. A team that makes a series of players find ways to get out. Anthony Martial and Donny van de Beek have granted their wish. Jesse Lingard, Dean Henderson, Eric Bailly and Phil Jones are not. Martial and Van de Beek could officially leave in the summer. Another million pounds will be lost when Paul Pogba and Lingard leave on free form at the end of the season, along with Edinson Cavani, Juan Mata and goalkeeper Lee Grant. Things will not end there. The person close to their insider told the Daily Mail: ” The real problem will be next year.”

There is a feeling that Lingard has set an example for other players so that they are afraid to extend their contract with the Red Devils. Nemanja Matic will have just one year left on his contract this summer. Cristiano Ronaldo, Marcus Rashford, Luke Shaw, David de Gea, Ronaldo, Fred, Diogo Dalot, Tom Heaton, Axel Tuanzebe, Andreas Pereira and Jones will have two years, should United trigger a 12-month extension in their contracts .

 A series of contracts are waiting for the new director to settle.

Many of these will want to know who the next Manchester United manager is before committing their future to the club. A major rebuild will also be required, things will be even more difficult if United fail to qualify for the Champions League this season.

This is a situation that Arnold has to accept, not to mention the big problem that exists with the rape allegation against Mason Greenwood. Besides the damage to United’s reputation, there is a threat hovering over the career of a young player worth nearly £100m. That wasn’t the problem Arnold wanted to think about on his first day on the job.
